  1. I would also like to know why it’s not recommended to follow the paste with the night renewing serum. I’ve done so without any adverse effects. I also wet my skin before using the paste because my skin is sensitive. This has worked great thus far. No problems.
    Thank you,

    1. We are the first to say that exfoliation is key to looking younger, but it is possible to get too much of a good thing. Over-exfoliation can cause chronic inflammation that will accelerate the aging process. The Micro-Dermabrasion Paste is an exfoliator and the Night Renewing Serum contains retinol. The RF Connection was receiving a remarkable number of concerns of dryness, redness and irritation when these products were used as a mini-facial on prospective customers. As you know exfoliation removes the upper layers of dead skin cells and retinol also helps promote skin renewal which increases the sloughing off of old skin cells. It is possible to combine the right chemical and physical exfoliators for maximum benefits but you have to find the perfect balance for your skin. The secret is not to overdo it. If your skin looks red and angry or becomes painful or sensitive after exfoliation, give it a rest and use a bland cleanser and moisturizer for a few days while your skin recovers.

  2. I am wanting to understand the reason why we should not use the micro derm paste, then followed with night renewing serum. I am a RN also and want to understand this so that if I get asked this question I can have a good answer as to “why”. Thank you.:)
